Another souls replacement? Sweet, I've seen at least 4 movies with that theme, so far.

American Splendor - So... do I identify with this movie? Well... shit, I consider... I cry a little bit less and a little bit more that I don't have a gramophone after seeing this. I find that whole idea for a comic great, unfortunately haven't heard about that before, I decided to see it cause it was number 6 at some the best comics screenings list that I bumped into some time ago, kickass was 3rd there if I remember well, so, that 3-item distance seemed encouragingly to me, so. 9/10

Doesn't Mission Impossible represent lethally boring static kind of action, so it'd kill me in front of 17" screen? Anyway, it seems so, so I haven't seen any part of it.

Slumdog Millionaire 9/10 and I liked the ending. Sweet? Fairylike, so it could be untrue as well. Better then obvious bad end for everyone.

Adventures of Tin Tin
Loved it. The action scenes were so much fun, reminded me at times of an Indiana Jones movie. The opening credit sequence was also awesome. The photo-realist angle was a bit weird for the first 2 or so minutes, but i really dug it after that.


Submarine
Loved this so much. Reminded me a lot of Wes Anderson movies, and the Adrian Mole book series. Paddy Considine steals the show with his wacky portrayal of that "new age" douche.


Terri
Was really good as well. John C. Reilly was phenomenal, and the kid who played Terri did a great job too. It's always nice to see a movie set in high school played by actual teenagers, rather than people who are pushing 40.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Was sort of surprised to see Fincher take on a movie like this, but he did a fantastic job with it. Craig and Mara were outstanding as the leads and Renzor's soundtrack was sublime, particularly the song that played over the very cool credit sequence.

On the surface, I thought it would be a two rednecks fighting off some supernatural force (this is just from the promotional art, I never actually read an synopsis or saw a trailer). I was quite surprised. It was really funny, well acted and all around a fun movie to watch. I enjoyed myself.

Ultraviolet - I'm still not entirely sure why I decided to watch it, but I've enjoyed it ways more than I expected. It has something to do with making myself believe that I am watching video game cinematics from early 00's and it suddenly became much more bearable and even enjoyable. Still, ugh, 3.5/10, but 'twas fun.

Currently in the middle of Conquest of Paradise, I've noticed a lot more of cheesy stuff since last time I've watched it.

I enjoyed the Debt for the most part. Granted i'm sort of a sucker for period piece, Cold War spy thrillers. My only real issue with it, was i felt the last act/25ish minutes was pretty weak in comparison to the rest of the movie.

Other ones i've seen recently;

50/50
This was really good; it managed to get the perfect balance between comedic moments with the drama. Also, Rogan and JGL had pretty good chemistry with one another.

The Guard
It was pretty good too. Brendan Gleeson should get more starring roles.

personal_loans_1
01-16-2012, 01:39 PM
Yeah, The Guard was fine. Or rather pretty good, but I missed something. I agree about Gleeson.

I think that 'War Horse' is not the best title.

But speaking of animals involved into a war, I saw this documentary a while ago, it's called Wojtek: The Bear That Went to War. It tells the unbelievable, surreal but true story of Wojtek, solider bear. He was even a corporal. A bear. I think that story would change my attitude towards history class entirely if I had heard it back then.
Kind of boring documentary, though it contains some breathtaking materials and relations. Like the solider that is playing with that bear, its kind of wrestling what they're doing. Pretty unique. So I'd rather recommend to check the story than the movie. It's awesome.

The Thing [1982] - holds the test of time just fine, young Mr Russell's face could've used a bit less of make up though.
The Thing [2011] - not nearly as bad as people make it to be, infact, it's one of the most connected sequels I've seen, the only thing that I didn't quite like was that they made the thing being capable of perfectly imitating, which is thinking and speaking like a human - in the '82 movie it wasn't as nearly "fluent".

EDIT: My bad, totally forgot about one guy, who was a total human until turned out he was the thing, so scratch the last part of what I wrote.

Coriolanus is pretty fucking awesome, you'll be surprised at first, though. Gerard Butler wasn't too good in it, I'm afraid I think so because I've been checking him out quite intensely over past few years and he was an exact typical himself in Coriolanus as you'd expect him to be, which was kind of a bummer for me. Fiennes did a great job (not talking only about acting).

Blindness was good.

Zodiac - 7.5/10. It was good. Not great for me, but good. Enjoyable and the characterization and acting would have kept you fully in it for the full term if not for some strange pacing before the third act. It throws the entire primary elements that had until then been in focus into a sort of resolution-aimed maelstrom which, after righting itself from the desperate tailspin everyone had fallen into, it swings for the gates for the end of the movie a little too neatly for me. I feel like it deserves an eight, but there was just... something that didn't work for me, and it irks me that I can't figure out what.

Blade Runner - 7.8/10. You have to accept Blade Runner for exactly what it is, with the questions that the Replicants' actions ask about human nature and memories. I think that, even more than its effects, cinematography, or acting, it's the ambiguity of the movie that hasn't let it age as gracefully as one would wish. It asks a lot of questions, but you have to accept that the point of the film isn't to answer them. Like all good sci-fi. And, to be honest, it is good Sci-Fi, shot in a great yet dense neo-noir style.

Aliens - 8.3/10

Perhaps the most enjoyable of the three movies I've posted, but it's interesting how much looser previous decades have seemed to be with regards to popular filmmaking, because there are themes in this movie that I just can't imagine in a blockbuster made within the last five years.

There's a moment - and, don't get the wrong, the entirety of the last forty-five minutes of this movie is truly phenomenal [after two hours which, it hasto be said, set the tone for the finale perfectly], and Sigourney Weaver brings that shit HOME, but that tense moment in the egg sac room.... two mother figures of different species, brought suddenly together by the instinct to protect and preserve. It's a great scene, where the sentinel aliens retreat slowly, unwillingly into the nest's confines, their instinct to protect the queen overwhelmed by the queen's own instinct to protect her young, while Ellen Ripley has one hand on her flamethrower and her other arm is thrown back, trying to hide Newt completely with her body... it's a great scene, and if you buy into it, I truly don't think the movie has aged much at all.

I quantify the whole thing with 'if you buy into it' because, of course, that tends to be a general benchmark for whether people are going to enjoy movies in general, and yet most people find it hard to admit. It's all about genres, or styles, or scripts, or directors for so many people, and yet more than anything it should really be about buying into certain premises. I feel like fans of TV shows get this more than others - the budget restricts the possibilities for the most part, and so a certain level of acceptance is necessary. And so it should be.

In conclusion, Aliens is great. By which I mean pretty damn good, even after all this time.

Pretty good and funny, and better than i thought it would be. But a bit depressing in some parts, but all in all it was good.

Piranha 3D 7/10

Gleefully gory. It's characters and story are above the traditional B-movie gorefest, where the characters in this movie were actually somewhat likable and the story, while following it's usual cliches, was overall enjoyable. It doesn't take itself seriously at all, which is something you should expect when going in to see this.

Apocalypse Now 4/10

This might just be my diminishing window-of-innocence talking, but I didn't find anything special about this "classic." It may have a been cutting-edge, controversial movie during the time of its origin. I simply couldn't enjoy it. I was forcing myself to watch the entire thing, though I wanted to turn it off 45 minutes in. The soundtrack (or lack thereof) was, really, the only notable characteristic.

Either that or I'm just not as cool as all of the non-conformists that love the flick.

Waynes World is definitely one of the better movies to come out of SNL (would be the best, if it wasn't for the Blues Brothers).

Constant Gardener
-Just like everything else Focus Features releases, i loved this. Ralph Fiennes was brilliant, and Rachel Weisz was pretty great too, although i found her character to be fairly annoying until the second half-to last act of the film. And without getting into spoiler territory, the last scene in particular incredibly well handled.

Marie Antoinette
I loved it. Especially way that Sofia Coppola had the nerve to cast aside the stereotypical aspects of period films (such as always having a classical score), and embraced a modern post-punk/indie rock soundtrack; each song fit the scene perfectly. And the art-direction was just fantastic.

When I watched Drive, I kind of felt like I was playing one of those RPG's where the protagonist doesn't speak, and instead just kicks ass and does all the dirty work while listening to other characters set up the story. It was an interesting way to make a movie, and I thought it was done pretty well.

Last thing I saw was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. There was no mystery, no riddle, you knew exactly how the story would go. Strokes of genious were coming out of the blue, what made them look fake. Also, they were illustrated with that characteristic Ritchie's camera movement that rushes and slows down when focused on particular things, and it didn't work there, it was too obviously a signature, and it had no support in action. At least an eye-candy.

Before it I've seen Lost in Translations and it was perfect. Best S.Coppola's film I've seen so far.

Those are two of my favorite movies. I also watched Braveheart for the first time a week ago (I know, it's a shame to admit that I've seen movies like Thor, but I just watched Braveheart for the first time). I'd also give that one a pretty good score. At least a 9/10, maybe higher.

Oh yeah a month ago I watched The Mist. I loved and hated the end. But mm=ost of the movie was just too cheesy in general. I'd give it a 5/10 but it was actually worth watching.

The Artist - 8.5/10

I've got to admit I was hesitant going into it. I wasn't sure if I could understand what, apart from being a film geek and geeking out, could make anyone in this day and age want to see a mostly silent b&w film. But I decently enjoyed it. I was really glad that the film wasn't out to bash modern cinema and kiss the collective ass of silent film- in fact, it nearly does the opposite. The writer/director clearly has affection for both, and in a couple of scenes he cleverly illustrates some of silent film's shortcomings.

The only points I deduct are for the story. While it was straightforward and well-paced, and the characters were very well-acted- I'm not sure I bought it. I didn't think the protagonist was as sympathetic as he was intended to be, for reasons that are difficult to describe without giving anything away. This was a very good film that would have been better 30-40 years ago, when it could have been made by a director who actually remembered what the transition into "talkies" was like. But this is the kind of movie that tells a story way bigger than the ones its characters are acting out.

First time seeing it. Had been putting it off forever. It was pretty good. Story was nothing special, but the effects and pacing made up for it.

Tron: Legacy 9/10

Big improvement with the story line. Effects were what you would expect and then some, Music was awesome (love Daft Punk) and overall I enjoyed the experience. This was also my first time seeing this one as well.

I really liked Tron Legacy. The story was sort of bland, but i was too distracted by the fantastic art direction and soundtrack to care.

The Inbetweeners Movie
-This was really fucking funny. Although a sequel would be horribly pointless, i really hope there's one, i just love the characters so much.

Margin Call
-It was prtty good; probably the best of the "white collar" type movies that have came out post-2008. Paul Bettney was especially solid, dude should get bigger roles.

I just did a francophones speaking english week end with Tintin and Hugo Cabret.

I enjoyed them both but was especially surprised with Tintin.

I mean, I knew I would love Hugo Cabret because it's a movie about Meliès and typically my kind of movie. The photography is just absolutely amazing. It was great to see the Station of Orsay as a real railway station (it is now a museum that I can just suggest you to visit. It has the most beautiful paitings, mostly of the 19th..., and the clock of the railway station has been kept. The clock worths the visit). The actors were all good, which is not always the case when there are kids. Also, I usually like Scorcese movies very much.

But then, I also usually love Spielberg movies. Tintin received very diverse critics here. good and bad. I am not a Tintinophile but I do love Tintin. I read them all, of course, and I had a small obsession with it as a child. Then Astérix outgrew Tintin in my heart, and I kind of forgot it. You see, contrary to Tintin, Astérix can be read when you are an adult because of the frequent jokes and references that you don't understand as a kid. Tintin is a comic that has not that subtext, IMO, which doesn't make it bad but just less interesting when you grow up.
Anyway, when I heard it was mixing 2 of the comics, I thought it would be crap but it really wasn't. The mix was very well done and it was great to see the meeting between Haddock and Tintin that is not in the Secret of Unicorn.
Also, the motion capture was simply amazing. Especially the boat fight and the part when Haddock recalls what happened in the desert.

On a side note, we have now what we can call a "thing" with my boyfriend about watching making-of of movies with Andy Serkis doing motion capture. It can be REALLY funny. This one wasn't so much. I would suggest the Planet of Apes Making-of which is absolutely hilarious.

Tintin is a comic that has not that subtext, IMO, which doesn't make it bad but just less interesting when you grow up.
I just want to say that this is exactly how I feel. Except loving Spielberg movies part. Tintin is fantastic when you are a child but as you get older you start to really appreciate Asterix. I have to admit I didn't get most of the jokes from Asterix and Son when I first read it.
I didn't like the movie though. Mixing the stories didn't work for me, they were very different from each other but I'm sure it doesn't affect people who didn't read the books. And at the end all I could say was "is that all?", it didn't feel like a whole story.

I'm not in a mood for complaining, therefore I'll only write that opening and cliffhanger of Deathly Hallows pt 1 (or rather circa 30 first and last minutes) were the best moments of the whole series and it was worth to see it just for that.

Tyrannosaur

The lead role in this was amazing. There's barely a happy moment in the movie (the "lightest" part of it is actually at a wake) but a fantastic movie nevertheless.

Kill List

Really not much of a horror fan, but i loved this. The first 2/3rds of it are essentially just a sort of crime-thriller, but it does such a fantastic job of building a very creepy atmosphere.

Tyrannosaur

The lead role in this was amazing.

I know, I know but lol.

The Skin I Live In - I wanted to turn it off soon after tiger's appearance; not that I was disgusted that much, but I was afraid of the direction it's heading in (I mean story, cause cinematography, music and acting were great from the beginning). Shreads of reviews I've heard (I haven't read any and wasn't even going to - luckily) were rather negative, thus I also was rather pesimistic. But I saw it till the end, and I'm really glad I did.
The second part was pretty intense, and the moment when I got to know what kind of prisoner Vera really is ( yep, I didn't know it from the beginning -.-') changed my perception of her so much, that I was truly impressed. I felt hopelessness and weirdness of the situation, what made me forgive this film its all previous imperfections. So finally it turned out to be magnificently sick. 8/10

'My week with Marilyn'. I didn't expect anything astonishing and my presumption was right because the movie is just mediocre. I didn't like Michelle Williams, but I think I don't like her in general and I can't really imagine any actress playing the role of Marilyn well.
The nice thing was that there was a cat in the cinema:) A loud impatient MIAOW in the most silent moment of the movie was the best part of it.

The Ipcress File:

Loved it; Michael Caine was a boss as always; very similar to Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy for the first two-thirds of it (in the sense it was sort of a slow moving spy thriller) but the last act got a little "bondish" but it was still awesome regardless.

Another Earth:

This was fantastic; i particularly loved how they handled the "sci-fi" parts to it, as in it was always just sort of in the background/setting - kept things nice and subtle. Great cinematography too.

Story is cliched, characters are somewhat likable, but forgettable, and the direction is nothing special, to be honest.

"The Big Year"

Very good solid comedy, though not enough of Steve Martin. Jack Black is finally starting to grow on me - I just did not like him right away years ago, but he's alright now. The blonde guy in this film is - ugh - anyways, his character reminds me of this guy I work with - really sort of bland personality - but it takes all kinds!

Good all around decent comedy movie. Catch it online, on DVD, etc.

I've watched quite a few movies lately.

Valkyrie: 7/10
I hate Tom Cruise, but I tried to put that aside. I LOVE WWII-era films, and I've seen a bunch of German ones, but this was the first Hollywood one I watched. And it was pretty awful. I guess I shouldn't watch Hollywood versions of historical European events. I'll leave Hollywood to comedies and dramas.

The Change-Up: 7.5/10
I like Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman... and Olivia Wilde is pretty damn hot. The part I enjoyed the most about this movie was that the guy realized he loved his wife and didn't cheat on her even though he agreed it wouldn't actually be cheating if he wasn't in his own body. The reason that was my favorite part was because the movie was pretty bad. Freaky Friday and Big are much better for this type of film.

Juno: 9.5/10
LOVED this film!! I can't believe I didn't watch it sooner! Oh my god, I loved everything about it. The acting was phenomenal, the characters, the story, the directing, the production... Michael Cera and Ellen Page were awesome. Holy crap, I really loved this movie.

Crazy Stupid Love: 8/10
I liked this one, despite it being sort of a rom-com. Steve Carrell is really not that great of an actor, but I like the characters he plays. And Ryan Gosling was incredible. That is one gorgeous man. Overall, it was a really nice story, well directed.

For my thesis I'm doing a chapter on film adaptations of Beowulf with special focus on Grendel's Mother, so I've started studying...by watching films, yay!

Last night I watched The 13th Warrior, an adaption of Michael Cricthon's Eaters of the Dead, which is in turn an adaptation of Beowulf. It was pretty okay I guess. Nothing special though.

This morning I watched Beowulf and Grendel. I liked this more - stayed closer to the original storyline and stuff, and had a better, more complex plot, and more complex characters.

Not enough Grendel's Mother in either of them though.

Underworld: Awakening


This one had a lot of potential that went completely to waste. My brother and I were both watching it and when it ended, we both went, "It's already over?"

I feel like they could have added a bit more plot and another half hour to the movie and it would have been really good, but instead it was just over an hour of mindless, gory violence, which I normally wouldn't mind if the previous installments hasn't had so much emphasis on the plot and backstory of the characters.

Overall, I feel as though they just didn't try to hard with this movie compared to the previous installments in the series.

2/10 (a "2", just because I didn't see any "zipper" in the aliens)

What a crappy movie. A failed attempt of a prequel for the ALIEN movies.

It's not exactly a prequel. Riddley Scott confirmed that in an interview.

Powder Blue 7/10

Pretty good movie. Very melancholy throughout with a satisfying conclusion. I will admit, though, at times the brooding nature of the film was kinda thick. I had a bunch of friends hype it up for me, telling me how great it is. I'm a little disappointed, but overall I enjoyed the movie.

Of course I'll watch anything important in Alien or Predator universe. Now, it's time for Alien vs. Space Jockey, Space Jockey vs. Predator or all of them together. :d But, Prometheus and Predators are asking for a sequel, so this first and then mix it up again.

"Alien" obviously needed another direction and I'm fine with it. Maybe, they could have done it more innovative and answer all of the questions, really nail it, but that would be risky. The budget was kinda limited. Maybe, it tried to do too many things, so the sequel could be even better concentrating on fights or what made Alien so great and then answer or pull some deeper questions off.

The Ides of March - After Driver, it was definitely nice to see Ryan Gosling talking. Films about politicians and their entourage heading the elections apparently don't work for me, although it was one of the best of that genre that I've seen so far. And nevertheless it was nice to watch it.

Thanks to influence from this BBS.

So I just watched 1954's Godzilla.

If you buy into the time it was made (9 years after the atomic bombings) and the technology available, it's actually a phenomenal film. I can see why it spawned the entire kaiju genre.

The characterization is great, the acting (one or two parts aside) is more than passable, and it plays so incredibly well into the post-nuclear fear that it's almost impossible to disparage.

Seriously a 9/10 for me. Easily the movie I've had stick the most in my mind since JCVD.

Few days ago I saw 'Man Bites Dog'. I do not recommend it to anyone. It's loathsome and pretty depressing, and scary, and sad. But since it's supposed to be exactly like that, I say - strong 7/10.
I'd feel sick and francophobic after seeing that to the rest of my life probably, but luckily, 'Intouchables' are pretty french too. And brilliant, funny and optimistic. I saw it today, my soul was saved this time.

And 'Prestige' was awesome. I enjoyed how they were annoying each other, I enjoyed Tesla plot a lot, and Christiano was somehow very good. I didn't like few things, but it doesn't matter. It was interesting film about magicians.

Recently I enjoyed “Snow White and the Huntsman” in 3D, Chris Hemsworth’s and Kristen Stewart’s performance were really awesome and I just loved the story of this movie a lot.:cool:

Apathy
07-16-2012, 05:06 PM
I hated Snow White and the Huntsman. It just blatantly pandered to girls so much that they even felt Florence & the Machine would suit the closing credits. It felt like a highly condensed Lord of the Rings made for girls. Like if the one ring to rule them all was bought at Claires. And came with a free ear piercing.


This, coming from someone who is no stranger to the chick flick genre. Most rom-coms today have quite a bit of "boyfriend humor" or action shoved in places so that guys can convince themselves that the preview looks funny and don't feel bad shelling out twenty bucks for a movie date.


The new Spider-man movie is pretty decent. I haven't seen the Tobey/Raimi ones in quite a while so I'm lacking a side-by-side comparison, but I don't remember hating the first or second one of those either. It feels a little unnecessary, but who am I to turn down more spidey?


The new Oliver Stone flick, Savages is good, but has a terrible ending. I can't say more without spoiling it, but generally I enjoyed it. I am possibly biased, because I'm pre-disposed to the lovely Blake Lively from closely following her terrible television show. It was also fun to see Kick-ass playing someone else.


Edit: Also, I watched the Royal Tennenbaums because I've never seen any Wes Anderson and it was suggested as a starting point. It was funny, I can dig black comedies. Honestly, I felt like Bill Murray was probably the weakest part of the cast (yes, even moreso than Ben Stiller) which worries me, because the other two that I've got queued up, Rushmore, and the Life Aquatic he figures to be a major factor. Any thoughts?

"For Your Eyes Only"
A good Bond film. Nice car chase, awesome ski chase, wicked cool luge/bobsled/motorcycle chase. Good final battle. And more witty remarks from both good and bad guys. But aside from that, it had a pathetic storyline with some meaningless characters and confusing shifts in Bond's opinion of who was right and who was wrong. 5.5/10.

Saw The Amazing Spider-Man last week. Really good. About what I was expecting. I knew the director from his music video work as well as his debut film, 500 days of summer, which I loved. That combined with the great cast made it so that the only thing to worry about was the story, which was really well done.

The Dark Knight Rises 8/10

minor spoilers ahead, nothing major

I really enjoyed this movie. I was very engrossed in the plot, Christian Bale was actually much better in this movie as Bruce Wayne/Batman (his Bruce Wayne/Batman always bugged, and not just the voice either, though that is back in full swing too), and the supporting characters were pretty cool, in particular John Blake, Selina Kyle and Bane were really good. In my humble opinion, Joseph Gordon-Levitt stole the show with his character and he's easily becoming one of my favorite actors in Hollywood right now. While a lot of people are criticizing her part, Anne Hathaway did a decent job as Catwoman, though I will concede that their were actresses better suited for the part. Still, she wasn't bad. Bane was great. I've heard a lot of people criticizing his voice, saying it really didn't suit the character, but I loved it. It had a deep Sean Connery type of accent which made the character more sophisticated. My only really big complaint about this movie is the plot, which I already said was really engrossing, but it seemed more like a sequel to the first movie rather than The Dark Knight. The movie takes place 8 years after the events in The Dark Knight and all the affect that movie has on the plot is A) Batman is a retired recluse and B) Harvey Dent's death left a positive mark on the city and the city is now a pleasant place to be. Ra's Al Ghul and the League of Shadows from the first film are back, but are more of a plot device. Bane is a former member of the League of Shadows and there is also more, but I don't want to give anything away. I feel a little bit upset that they recycled this rather than moving on to something different, but it all makes sense in the end, which is why I still enjoyed this movie. People will get super fucking nit-picky about this movie, but as a whole, it's a satisfying conclusion. There is nothing really to hate here, but possibly be annoyed by if you are a nit-picky person and really loved the Dark Knight. My only other nit-pick about this movie is, out of all the villains from the previous movies that are referenced, They don't freaking mention the Joker. Not even a throwaway line about how the Joker affected Batman, but I suppose that's for the better I guess.


I also saw Ted last night/this morning. 7/10. Funny movie, really good jokes. Overall plot makes sense and is an enjoyable film to watch.

Spoilers maybe:



My dislike for the movie has very little to do with comic book nitpicking and a whole lot more to do with it being a subpar movie. My major complaints are that there was 20 minutes of Batman in a near 3 hour Batman movie and that while so much stuff happens, none of it was provoking or worthwhile, it was a whole lot of nothing.

I'll get into it more when I get home and don't have to use my iPod.

That's a fair point. I remember one reviewer (can't remember who) said it was more of an ensemble piece rather than a Batman movie.

Savages

I think this is the first Oliver Stone movie that I quite enjoyed.

Bits of the story were a bit too "hippie-ish" for my taste, but overall it was a lot of fun; Del Toro was awesome. Its style/astheti reminded me a lot of a Tony Scott movie.

Dark Knight Rises

I loved it: probably my favorite of Nolan's trilogy.

Not sure where to begin really: all the callbacks to the previous two films were outstanding: it really felt like a satisfactory conclusion to the storyarch. I loved the scale of it: it seemed almost like a Bond movie at times (plane part of the intro).

Tom Hardy's performance of Bane was phenomenal, and dare I say, it is at least on par with Ledger's joker. At times Bane was absolutely terrifying/intimidating but he had personality, he wasn't just this thug, he had a quick wit (ie his lines during the stock exchange scenes); he was quite literally the anti-Batman. And his accent was perfect.

There really wasn't a weak performance from the rest of the cast either, JGL was tight as always, Hathaway totally won me mover too (i was dreading watching her: she's been absolutely unlikeable in just about every other movie she's acted in): but Michael Caine as Alfred was by far the best acting of the entire trilogy.

I tried, man. I really tried to get into it. I enjoyed Royal Tenenbaums quite a bit, but I could never get into most of Anderson's other films. This one in particular, I couldn't find the reason to the rhyme. I appreciated that it had a great setting that could have made for an interesting look at a bunch of heavily isolated individuals, but I couldn't connect with anyone and none of the characters, or their relationships with one another, really meant anything to me. I just couldn't make myself care.

Final Destination 5 7/10

Having seen the previous 4 movies, I can say this is probably one of the best of the franchise. The last two started to become formulaic, border lining comedic, gore porn flicks. The tension in these movies was becoming laughable and the characters were forgettable victims of elaborate, over the top death scenes, which to be honest is what the audience of these movie's want, but it doesn't have to cost plot or decent character development. The plot, of course, is simple, but this movie spends a lot more time developing it's characters. There aren't very many annoying asshole characters like in the last two movies (save for one guy who gets offed pretty early) and the rest of the cast, including the minor characters, seem a lot more sincere and memorable. The pace is a lot slower than the last movie, allowing us time to breath in what's going on. The direction was also really good and the twist ending is a nice reference for fans of this franchise (somebody already semi-spoiled it for me, so when I saw the clues that lead to it, I already knew what was coming, but it was still nice). Overall, if you liked the first two movies, this one is definitely worth a watch.

The nice thing is there was no "real" actors when they made the movie. The directors does pretty much everything, he is also the main actor and many of the other characters are played by his friends and family.

Looper. I didn't really know anything about it going in but I'd seen a tv trailer and it looked like it might be worth watching. Sadly it wasn't. Time travel stories are difficult to get right but this movie made a horrible mess of it. Aside from that I thought there were some decent performances, particularly from a superb child actor, but nothing that could redeem this pile of poo. I get the feeling the script went through a massive series of re-writes. It's the only way I can explain all the pointless details thrown in that went nowhere or were never referred to again. I'm thinking they must have been artifacts from previous versions of the script. That would also explain why the story was so monumentally fucked and couldn't keep any internal consistency. Compared to this, Timecop looks like it was written by Stephen Hawking.

Saw Skyfall this weekend, and Seven Psychopaths and Birdemic with Rifftrax commentary a couple weeks ago.
Having never seen any of the classic bonds (I've only seen the Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig ones), and it being such a long time since I've seen the non-Daniel Craig ones, I can't say much about how it stacks up in the grand scheme of Bond films, but I enjoyed it quite a bit and it was probably the best of the last Craig ones to date. The Moneypenney reveal was dumb, though.
The trailers for Seven Psychopaths left me with the feeling that it was trying way too hard, but since it got such good reviews I figured I'd give it a go. While it was fun, I still felt like it was trying too hard both to be meta, and to have crazy, ridiculous characters.
Birdemic was horribly made, horribly written, horribly acted, and the sound constantly went from almost ear-destroyingly loud to being impossible to hear, and it was awesome.

Liked this quite a bit: usually don't care for Hally Berry but she did a pretty good job but Hanks stole the show as usual: it was an interesting idea to use the same actors for multiple roles - was fun trying to pick them out even with really heavy makeup on. I think i'll need to watch it a second time to properly take in the plot though.

Fucking brilliant. The best of the Craig Bonds, and has become one of my favorite in the series. The Shanghai scenes were absolutely stunningly gorgeous; all the throwback references to the past Bond films were perfect; and Bardem was a brilliant villain (loved all the homoerotic tension): but the final act/fight was my favorite part of the whole thing.

If you have the time, re-watch it: it takes a couple viewings for the finer plot points to sort of sink in. I'm quite a fan of it though: the ending montage while "La Mer" plays is just perfect.

Ôdishon (Audition) is the first movie in a very very long time that I didn't finish. I stopped shortly after gore part started. Holy fuck, holy fuck, holy fuck. I'm not sure if to delete it or just watch it the other time. I'm not sure if it's worth it. First part was very nice though. Then it gets a little boring and then I suppose it 'starts' again. But I don't know...
Probably I shouldn't have a supper while watching it at the first place. I knew it was a bad idea, but also I thought I'm more resistant to such a things. Apparently I'm not.

Lincoln

Was pretty good. Though i think that my favorite performances were actually from James Spader and Tommey Lee Jones rather than with Daniel Day Lewis.

One Week

Liked it quite a it. The whole thing was like one big road trip across Canada.

Flight with Denzel Washington was pretty good last night. I had no idea what it was about and it turned out to be one of the better movies I've seen in awhile.

The last movie I really loved was Copland.

I've never seen it before and I thought it was a great movie. Stallone would have made me cry if it was a crying type movie.

Was Idle Hands a film anybody watched repeatedly after their first viewing of it? I mean, I get it, we all saw it because we like the Offspring but fucking ... really? It feels like one of those films you might not appreciate once the novelty of seeing your fave band on-screen has worn off.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Unfortunately I was a bit baked for the first half hour so was a bit overwhelmed, but after that I began to really enjoy it. The music is so fucking intense. I loved Martin Freeman as Bilbo, think he was a great choice for the part. The 3 hours really flew by, I was hoping that it wouldn't end, but alas.

Also loved Kili ;)


Can't wait for the next one! Think I will reread the book now.

It's the most awesome movie ever, not just because of The Offspring. Jessica Alba and Seth Green act there too. The complete opposite of "Pauly Shore is dead". Dexter is in that movie too (just in the outtakes of the DVD), like many other celebrities, but it's still the worst movie I've seen.

I agree even if The Offspring were not in it I would still really like Idle Hands

but then again I like almost anything that is a horror comedy and yeah Pauly Shore is dead is an awful B movie

I think Idle Hands manages to stand on its own merits. Granted its not very well made, but its still pretty fun.

Lawless

Was really good: Guy Pierce really steals every scene he's in. Would have liked to have seen more of Gary Oldman's character. I really like Nick Cave's work as a screen-writer - i totally need to watch The Proposition again.


Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

It was a lot of fun - I appreciated that they didn't shy away from the over the top action scenes.

I saw 2012 yesterday. I had not seen it before and thought it was fitting to see it yesterday.
